5 Questions To Ask During An Apartment Tour In Westfield
What’s The Apartment’s Pet Policy?
Asking about the pet policy is a must if you own a dog or cat, or you’re considering adopting one very soon. After all, you’d like your pet to be just as at home in the apartment as you are. However, it's also a good question to ask on an apartment tour if you’re not a pet owner. That way, you know what critters you might see on a day-to-day basis. Also think of asking what pet-friendly amenities complex has -- like dog runs or free waste disposal bags.
How Will I Pay Rent And Utilities?
In the old days, rent was always paid by check at the office. These days, there could be different ways to pay. Does the complex have an app or can pay by direct deposit? Can I use my credit card and stack up points for my rent payment? Some complexes may even let you pay through trusted payment systems like Venmo or PayPal. Asking this question while on an apartment tour can be key for residents who travel or need an easier option for paying rent.
Learning how the complex handles utilities can also make your life easier later on. What utilities come with rent? Can you add utilities to my rent check? Are utilities, like gas and water, set by communal use or are they determined by each unit? Can I choose the internet, phone, or cable providers, or do I have to use the same company as the other residents? These questions should be cut and dry, but sometimes the answers are different than you'd expect.
What Amenities Will I Have Access To?Your Westfield apartment tour should also include a quick peek. During your Westfield apartment tour you should also see the amenities and grounds. While an overview of what a community has is helpful, you might wish to probe further into the details of the apartment community’s amenities.
If you want to exercise in the early morning or late at night due to your personal schedule, be sure to ask about the workout center’s hours -- and when it’s the busiest. Moms and Dads may wish to see what the children’s policy is for the fitness center or pool and hot tub. If you’d love an apartment that’s not just a place to lay your head down at night, but a community you can truly enjoy, it’s vital to ask about amenities during your apartment tour. What you learn may influence your final choice between two apartment complexes in Westfield.
What Happens If I Need Maintenance?
Before you leave your apartment tour, remember to ask about the maintenance situation. Maintenance policies can vary between companies, from 24-hour emergency response to outside contractors that needs to be booked during operating business hours. Unforeseen problems do crop up at times, but it’s how your maintenance requests are handled that can deeply influence your apartment experience.
When you’re asking about maintenance, don’t be afraid to be thorough. Does the apartment have 24-hour on-site maintenance, or can they only perform repairs during regular business hours? Who do I call about an emergency? Can I go online to fill out request maintenance? And how will I be contacted when they are done? It’s also a good idea to ask what work won’t be covered by maintenance, such as washer/dryer hookup or new shelving.
